Escalating Prices! Yikes!

Twice annually, I plan meticulously to order my soapmaking supplies. 
As a very small business, Angelic Soap strives to never sacrifice corners with base oils and other ingredients. As other soap makers know, the entire process is time consuming, so if I am not making the best product I am capable of creating, why bother?
For a long time, I have endeavored to keep my prices as low as possible.
I also charge my clients the shipping charges only - no handling charges - ever. If a client overpays via the "prix-fix" electronic shipping menu, all overages over $1.00 are immediately reimbursed.
Recently, when I went to order my supplies, I was in complete sticker shock.
Many of my luxury oils have increased exorbitantly. Some of the base oils have decreased. The essential and fine fragrance oils go up and down like the stock exchange.
And the shipping charges on Angelic's raw materials are staggering.
Gave me pause.
I was shipping some orders the first part of this week - another shock! USPS priority delivery has increased. Additionally, the delivery is no longer 2nd day priority. The delivery time is 3 days now.
Wow.
What is a small business to do?
Angelic Soap will NOT be increasing shipping charges to keep up with the escalation. However, it is always wise to plan to order as many bars as affordable. This saves on shipping in the long run. Stock up for a rainy day, so to speak. 
Lastly, instead of subbing cheaper base oils, Angelic Soap has modestly increased prices on its most luxurious, specialty soaps, as well as soaps that contain the priciest essential oils. 
This way, you can be assured that Angelic Soap will continue providing the very best products, the purest and most nutritious ingredients and NO SHIPPING INCREASES!!!
Love,
Angelic Soap

Happy Summer Solstice!

We are celebrating with a gorgeously-scented new listing! 
Angelic Florida Water Shea is a fragrant confection that puts a big twist on the classic Florida Water. The scent combination (all essential oils) features an extraordinary amount of different notes that meld together beautifully. 
I cannot stop smelling it - it is that good. 
Spices, fruits, florals, citrus and a little herbaceous hint result in a complex olfactory, true aromatherapeutic experience. 
Perfect for the long summer days ahead.

A Return to Original Purpose

I am successfully returning to the original purpose of my soapmaking. This is gradually being reflected in my shop's offerings.

The decision to return to my basic repertoire (real, wholesome, luxury soap that is especially tailored for sensitive skin, a delight for the senses, the spirit and kind to the environment) surfaced when I realized that there were more than 47 different soaps (different scents and attendant recipes) for sale in the shop.

Too large of a menu!

The amazing variety came about by trying to please many different people, while appeasing my own penchant for creativity without boredom.

 There are many, many talented soap makers that offer outstanding scented soaps.

I wanted to create a different product.

A product that could be offered in the finest stores, yet without the huge price tag and synthetic ingredients that so many of us cannot tolerate.

 My clientele is dedicated and they know to expect outstanding quality and service.

So .... I am 'back to basics' - but my selections are anything but boring to make and use!

I am still formulating my own recipes in the Ayurvedic tradition, adhering to seasonal changes, skin types and doshas.

I still use the highest quality ingredients that I can source (most are food grade and organic).

For an up to the date schedule of future soaps and listing dates, please look at www.angelicsoap.com in the "On the Curing Rack" section.

Today's listings include shop favorites, Black Patchouly Shea, Black Temple Incense Shea, Five Sandalwoods Shea and Butter Cream (one of the most decadent, yet pure soaps that I have ever made/used).

Mid Spring will find a beautiful RueVetiver herbal soap, as well as Vata Ayurvedic Shea + more!

A Summer 'must have' is Angelic's beautiful, complex rendition of Florida Water.

In Abundant Beauty and Health,

Winter Goddess Shea is made from our extra nutritious and moisturizing recipe, enriched with raw, organic shea butter.

As well as being an awesome aromatherapy treat, Winter Goddess is visually beautiful.

Each hand cut bar weighs approximately 5+ ounces and looks like a glittering, snowy landscape, capped with a large star anise.
